Apple juice and gingersnaps give an autumn feel to this tender, slow-cooked brisket. It’s quick to prep, and the mouthwatering aroma will linger for hours.—Colleen Weston, Denver, Colorado


  • 1 fresh beef brisket (6 pounds)
  • 2 jars (12 ounces each) mushroom gravy
  • 1 cup apple cider or juice
  • 1 envelope onion mushroom soup mix
  • 1/3 cup crushed gingersnap cookies


  1. Cut brisket into thirds; place in a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine the gravy, cider, soup mix and cookie crumbs; pour over beef. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Thinly slice meat across the grain. Skim fat from cooking juices; thicken if desired.
